You are right Randy,
MB cars are great, especially as second hand since they keep the feeling of a new car longer than most other brands.
However, sooner or later all cars meets problems and since MB:s are often company cars or owned by pretty rich people as new, the repairs and parts tend to be higher priced than other cars. It is also harder to find spares from wrecked cars and as second or maybe the tenth enthusiast owner of a MB, we need support of each other to keep the repair costs at an affordable level before we rush to the garage. Simple as that.
A great car deserves a great Forum and this is what we´ve got here.
